Dubai, United Arab Emirates, June 10, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- UAE based City Seasons Group of Hotels has been recognised by Crescentrating which supports halal friendly travel & tourism and awarded a Crescentrating rating of five for its halal friendly services and facilities.
Crescentrating was launched to support the development of a halal friendly travel and tourism sector and is a rating standard which rates hotels on a scale of one to seven based on their halal services and facilities.
The City Seasons Hotel Dubai, City Seasons Hotel Al Ain, City Seasons Suites Dubai and City Seasons Al Hamra Abu Dhabi are strong supporters of the Crescentrating, offering halal only menus and not serving alcohol. The hotels also provide facilities and information for prayers and are able to cater to the needs of Muslim guests during Ramadan.
“We are pleased to have been recognised by Crescentrating and being awarded a rating of five means that we are suitably equipped to cater to the halal conscious traveller,” said Thomas Tapken, Managing Director, City Seasons Group of Hotels.
A pioneer in the development of the halal friendly travel and tourism sector, Crescentrating launched the halal friendly rating standard for travel and tourism services and facilities in October 2009. Hotels from 13 countries have now joined the growing list of Crescentrated hotels.
“We are really pleased to welcome City Seasons as a member of Crescentrated Hotels,” said Fazal Bahardeen, CEO of Singapore based Crescentrating. “Halal conscious travellers are increasingly looking for such facilities for both business and leisure travel and our rating system enables these travellers to make an educated choice when making their travel plans. With a Crescentrating of five, all of the City Season Hotels are capable of meeting the requirement of these travellers.”
The Crescentrating.com website provides destination guides, airport guides, restaurant guides and other information such as a Qiblah locator and prayer time calculator to cater to the unique needs of the halal conscious traveller. It also lists all Crescentrated friendly hotels.
